Thank you for your review

We chose to use a BYO campsite. The campsite was clean, no litter, flat and with a great view. The price was reasonable and there was a great camp kitchen with microwaves, boiling water on tap, BBQs etc. Again all clean and in good condition. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Could not praise it enough. Would definitely stay again.

Wear ear plugs

Pros: It was exciting staying on an island. The views are magnificent. It felt safe. There is a fridge and cooking facilities that I wasn't aware of.
The setting is idyllic but if you are light sleeper I recommend wearing ear plugs. Motor boats pass by all night and noise from kids having a slumber party in neighbouring tents was obtrusive. The tents are very close to one another.

Good fun for kids. Camping tents on the ground get wet at night.
